The film tells the story of a Sephardi family of Egyptian Jewish immigrants who settle in 1947 Tel Aviv. Clara, (played by Gila Almagor) , one of Israel’s most prominent actresses, is a widow with four children. Sami makes the transition from a shy 15- year-old to a working man and an activist in the Irgun resistance movement. He develops a romantic attachment with a Russian librarian (Michal Bat-Adam ). Under pressure to take a husband, Clara’s feelings are complicated by the advances of another Egyptian Jew, played by Yosef Shiloach. The movie is a vivid description of the lives of Sephardi immigrant families on the eve of the declaration of the state of Israel against a backdrop of escalating violence.
